Re: NFCU - When to ask for CLI?

Well, you guys know by now that I love a SP increase, given all of the ones I have gotten from Walmart!  After reading this thread I went to NFCU's website and did an online request also.  I asked for an increase of $5,000, they countered with $2,000, so I took it.  My limit is now $22,000 with Navy.  Thanks OP for starting this thread!

Re: NFCU - When to ask for CLI?

You're welcome Les!  :smileyhappy:  

 

So, did they do a HP or SP?

 

I'm scared to request it.  I still can't believe they gave me an unsecured card and even though my score is up 100-ish points since then (in only 2-ish months), I worry they will turn me down AND HP.   Working SO hard to try to get score up...don't want a ding for nothing.

I think the only way to ensure that it's only a SP is to have your CRs frozen. When you app for a CLI online, the line above the submit button authorizes them to check your credit and doesn't distinguish between hard or soft. IMO, if it's only been 2 months, the likelihood is they're going to do a HP.
